Lahore, Jun 1: Pakistan Test and One-Day skipper Misbah-ul-Haq has said bilateral cricket ties should be revived soon, as fans in both the countries are desperate to watch their side play.
"It is very important that we have a quick revival of Indo-Pak cricket, because fans desperately want to see both countries play," Misbah was quoted as saying in The Express Tribune.
Cricketing ties between the two nations had broken down after the 2008 terror attacks on Mumbai which claimed 186 lives.
Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Zaka Ashraf was invited for Indian Premier League season 5 final on Sunday. Following this, endless meetings took place between PCB and the Indian cricket boards officials (BCCI) for the possibility of a short tour of Pakistan to India during the winter.
Recently, the BCCI allowed Pakistan's domestic T20 champions Sialkot Stallions to participate in October's Champions League.
Pakistan's last tour of India was in December 2007, India were supposed to tour Pakistan in 2009 but the 26/11 attacks led to the fall of cricketing ties between the two nations. Both teams have played a few games but all of them have been either ICC or ACC tournaments.
